Windows 7: Sony Vaio BSOD Screens and query on checking external drives

13 Feb 2013   #11

Windows 7 64 bit

Sorry KoolKat, I wanted to check the drives first before doing that. I will do it now.
I have attached another diskmgmt.msc screen shot showing the 'e' drive which says it's healthy.
I just disconnected the usb to my printer and got the same BSOD as I loaded earlier.

Will do it now and report back

Try running the CHKDSK on the e: drive now, with it plugged in (how did you think it might be able to check it without being plugged in?)

I checked the 'e' drive with the usb stick attached and have posted the results below. I don't know much about computers - I didn't realise you had to have a storage device attached to the drive in order to check it. I have posted the screen shot below.
I dis-enabled driver verifier and when I was shutting down the computer having done so, windows updates were being installed and I got the same BSOD screen as was in the bugcheck earlier. I rebooted and haven't had one since. Is it safe for the computer to leave the driver verifier dis-enabled?

It has been one week since this post and I have not had another BSOD after dis-enabling driver verifier. I am wondering if it is safe to leave it dis-enabled? Thank you for your help and advise to date.

Like I said verifier can cause false BSOD so you're better with it disabled.
